Containers and hypervisors are different technologies. And also they lead to different usage, sometimes contradictory: Xen is a powerful hypervisor, allowing SysAdmins to build strong IT infrastructures, with security, control, resources isolation and flexibility. Docker is a container project bringing simplicity and universality for developers to build, test and ship their applications without thinking of what’s behind it. That’s why if you let everyone create Docker containers on your whole infrastructure, it will surely wreak havoc: CPU, RAM, network or disk usage without limits could lead to very serious problems. This talk will cover how developers can benefit from the flexibility containers provide, while avoiding potential shortcomings. By uniting Linux container and hypervisor technology, developers can get the best of both worlds and answer today’s cloud computing challenges.
